A collection of demo music from retro sound cards, drivers, and music software. Back in the day, when not all computer audio was created equally, everyone wanted the absolute best sound card on the market. It could make a vast difference in your desktop experience if you played a game listening to a PC speaker versus hearing it come thumping out of a Sound Blaster 16, for example. It was an exciting time for gaming as well as the age of multimedia and digital music creation. This collection...

A collection of startup sounds, logo jingles, menu music, and speaker tests from retro game consoles and arcade cabinets. If you ever owned one, hearing the startup sound of the Sony PlayStation will raise the hairs on the back of your neck. It will make you inch forward from your seat just to make sure the second part of the startup is working (otherwise the disc won't be read and that's a sad Christmas). For oldschool PC lovers that played endless hours of Dune II: The Building of a Dynasty,...

A couple of years ago I bought about 3,000 floppy disks from a guy in Los Angeles who once ran a PC shareware company. Many of the disks contained shareware downloads from various BBSes in that area, mostly from the late 80s to about 1994. Knowing their historical value, I copied the files off several hundred of these floppies for the sake of history before succumbing to fatigue. As far as I know this is all shareware or freeware, roughly organized into whatever BBS they downloaded it from....

With the introduction of offline storage (in the form of tape and punch cards, later floppy disks, hard drives and cards), computer users began to create and acquire all manner of data to use with their machines. Programs, textfiles, and later images, sound and moving image data would be collected in the course of computer ownership and maintenance. Over time, this collection would sometimes resemble a pile, or a library, or an archive. The unifying theme would only be that they were all on the...

In the early 1990s, the service provider America On-Line (AOL) initiated a new "carpet-bombing" approach to acquiring new members, sending free CD-ROMs throughout the USA offering trial access to the service. This approach grew AOL from 200,000 accounts to over 22 million. Along the way, millions of CD-ROMs were produced for AOL, at one point representing 50% of all CDs being manufactured worldwide.

The first DECtalk units were seen in 1984. They were standalone units that connected to any device with an asynchronous serial port. These units were also able to connect to the telephone system by having two telephone jacks. One connected to a phone line, the...
